The 13-Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths

Andy and Terry are two boy writers who have a wacky 13-story treehouse that includes a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, a tank full of sharks, a library full of comics, a secret underground laboratory, a game room, self-making beds, vines you can swing on, a vegetable vaporizer and more. Unfortunately, their treehouse has so many fun distractions that they are behind on writing their next book.  While racing to meet their publisher’s deadline, they end up embarking on a wild adventure. This delightful book is filled with whimsical illustrations and will appeal to fans of the Wimpy Kid and Big Nate books. Geared at children ages 8-11. 

For Adults

The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth Silver

Noa P. Singleton is thirty five and has spent the last ten years of her life on death row awaiting execution for the murder of Sarah Dixon. What we do not know is why she committed the murder (if she even did do it) and what other events might have led to this crime. The answers to these questions come out slowly as Noa is visited by Marlene Dixon, the mother of the woman Noa was convicted of killing. Marlene promises to do what she can to get Noa’s death sentence changed to life in prison if Noa will tell her story about what led her to commit this crime. Told through various view points, this haunting tale will stay with you past the last page.
